Description/Reviews
“Escape” is the album’s monster. An eighteen minutes long epic rog-journey with something for every taste which easily succeeds with its ‘songs within a song’ approach in logically flowing from one part to the next to form a complementary whole. It begins with a synth melody in the back giving way to a towering, heralding, anthem-like guitar work perfectly demonstrating Eric’s top-notch playing skills. He is not just another fancy guitar-slinger, he knows how to add a memorable and soulful feeling to his moving fingers in the right amount, a dose that oozes inspiration and virtuosity. After the crescendo comes a peaceful break with a sad melody acting as the backdrop for Eric’s voice, with guitars climbing slowly pairing the lyrics.
